Fitness Apps are programs specifically designed for use on mobile devices like watches, tablet PCs and smartphones. Their main purpose is to help build exercise habits, track and measure progress, and improve overall health and wellness.



There are literally thousands of health and fitness applications being offered in app stores. In recent years, there has been a surge in demand, and it is estimated that in 2020 alone, more than 71,000 new health and fitness products were launched by app developers globally.


A simple google search for the keywords 'fitness app' will yield multiple pages which are mostly reviews promising the 'Best' or the 'Top Ten' Fitness Apps available in the market. The search results give a general idea of the level of competition in the mobile app space; everyone fiercely vying for views and consumer impressions.

With a vast multitude of options to choose from and with critics and experts alike not showing a clear consensus on which apps are the 'Best' or should be in the 'Top Ten'; it is easy to get sidetracked in the search for a Fitness App that is the best fit for you.


We here in Pliagility believe that finding the best need not be a complicated task. We will not further complicate it by offering a list of what we consider to be the best wellness and fitness apps out there, but rather make it simple by focusing on the key element - YOU.


  • Ease of Use - You should be able to get started quickly. The user interface is straight forward and easy to navigate and understand. Availability of in-app quick guides and video snippets are encouraging signs that you have a great app.

  • Highly Customizable - You are a unique individual with a unique set of needs, abilities, interests, challenges, and goals. A good Fitness App should allow you to input health information like your age, weight, body measurements, your current fitness level, as well as list and define your various health and fitness goals. Building a personal profile like this will help you match to the right program and address your specific needs.

A critical requirement is that it should be able to support your schedule. Fit your Fitness Plan into your life, not the other way around.

Make sure your app allows you to take and upload progress photos.

We know that exercising is beneficial to our health. But as they say, too much of a good thing is not all good. The same holds true with exercising. Too much exercise can be more detrimental to your health and body than you may think.

Over-Exercising

According to an article published by The Health Journal, the following are the possible side effects of over exercising:


1. Developing a Negative State of Mind

It is very important that one takes a physical and mental rest in order to avoid physical and mental exhaustion. According to the Health Journal "When you don’t take a rest day, you subconsciously start becoming more irritable. Your brain thinks more pessimistically, focusing on the bad instead of the good."


2. Increased Risk of Injury

You must give your body time to recover after an intensive exercise. The rest time will give your body a chance to recover and repair. The Health Journal reiterated that "Overuse of the muscles, ligaments and tendons will cause constant inflammation in your body, heightening your chances of injury."


3. Increased Stress Level

The Health Journal states that "Consistent high-intensity workouts will cause your endocrine system to start to fatigue. When this occurs, your endocrine system will start to produce cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that is also known as the stress hormone since it induces stress."


4. More Often Being Sick

When you exercise, your goal is to be healthy and not be sick. Hence, you should avoid over exercising as it will give negative result and will actually be more detrimental to your health. According to the Journal "Overexercising will compromise your immune system, and your performance levels will worsen."

If you are a senior citizen and thinking of starting a fitness routine, Pliagility is the right program for you. All programs are custom-tailored to the needs of the specific students. We trained older adults and seniors with great success.


According to an article by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC"), those over 65 years should perform the following physical activity in order to at least delay or prevent any major health issues associated with aging:

  • "At least 150 minutes a week (for example, 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week) of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking. Or they need 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity activity such as hiking, jogging, or running.

  • At least 2 days a week of activities that strengthen muscles.

  • Activities to improve balance such as standing on one foot about 3 days a week."
